It's not really a grand re-opening. It's much more humble than grand.
It's been three years since I sold anything on Etsy. I've really missed it. Not the selling part exactly (though having Paypal funds to BUY stuff on Etsy was always nice, as I love to support other artisans that way) but the part I missed most was just the simple act of making stuff with my hands.
Sure, I've been creating, yes. I wrote a book. And I wrote another one that comes out in three weeks. I also licensed two calendars this year. And don't get me wrong, those were a LOT of work and I'm very fortunate and blah blah blah. But it isn't the same kind of work. My drawings for the books were done exclusively on the computer. Over these last three years it has sometimes felt like my entire life was being lived exclusively on the computer. And that felt...well, bad. (The irony of the fact that I'm writing this on a computer right now to be published on a blog is not lost on me.)
So I made some things. Old-fashioned style with my hands.
All of it is one of a kind (actually, there are two sheep ornaments available - but everything else just one) and available in the woodmouse shop now.
PS - I mostly post images on Instagram now. So quick and simple!
